We will be discussing various issues in Church and Community. Thanks for joining us!

    The People Said Nothing

    The People Said Nothing

    "How long will you waiver between two opinions?
    If the Lord id God, follow him
    But if Baal is god, follow him.
    ...but the people said nothing."

    Today we look at a Bible story that is one of my favorites from the Old Testament.
    Sure David and Goliath is good and Jonah is incredible, but this story tells us something about how to live amongst a culture that doesn't respect or honor God. More than that, the culture surrounding Elijah was hostile and full of persecution. 
    More subtly though, as we will see, this culture had let time wear down the very things that kept them focused on God.

    I believe we can learn a lot from this story, if we have ears to hear.

    I'm Matt Odegaard, Welcome to Church Public.

    SCOTUS Win! and SATAN in Schools?

    SCOTUS Win! and SATAN in Schools?

    HUGE Supreme Court win against Jab Mandates for businesses.

    And President Biden misquotes scripture while trying to pass a nationwide voting bill. 
    Meanwhile, 800,000 illegal aliens in New York now can vote.
    And in DC, you have to show your papers to eat, or do anything, so that's nice.

    Finally, the Satanic Temple wants your elementary school student to join their after school club where they absolutely won't tell you to follow Satan, they just want to play games. Right?

    Mass Formation Psychosis is Real

    Mass Formation Psychosis is Real

    Do you notice some people around you are walking zombies that blindly follow whatever the "experts" say? 

    Does it seem like no matter what science changes or what common sense or facts you say, it doesn't matter and those indoctrinated just continue to suspend belief and follow blindly?

    Does this sound like some sort of weird cult that people get trapped in and don't even know they are in?

    If any of these statements ring true, then you may be a conspiracy theorist, or to put it a different way, you may just be awake.


    14 This is why it is said:
    “Wake up, sleeper,    rise from the dead,    and Christ will shine on you.”
    Paul from Ephesians 5:14 

    "for God DID NOT give us a spirit of fear but of power and love and self-control." Paul in 2 Timothy 1:7

    From all accounts, both in and out of news and from personal anecdotal evidence, this weird phenomena IS happening all over America and all over the world.
    There are people who just seem to have been programmed to believe whatever it is they are told and they don't seem to be able to differentiate fact from fiction.

    Why?

    Well, I cannot tell you for sure, I am not a doctor, so let's hear from a couple doctors about what might be happening.

    Go Woke, Go Broke

    Go Woke, Go Broke

    Go Woke, Go Broke

    A pithy saying some of us have heard and been using for a while, but sadly, it holds truth.

    Today we have to highlight two flagship organizations that have recently moved away from the gospel tenant of being "in the world and not of it," to something more like, "following Jesus is hard, let's do what the world is doing instead."

    Salvation Army took a HUGE hit this Christmas season in donations and volunteers largely because they chose to follow the anti-Christian Critical Race Theory crowd down the rabbit hole. And they paid the price for it.

    Focus on the Family, in a different strain, has decided to enforce the Biden Administrations unconstitutional and unconscionable medical mandate on all of it's employees potentially affecting the lively hood of dozens of their own families, not to mention capitulating to an overreaching governmental demand.

    We will look at both of these in today's show.

    Omicron Takes Over

    Omicron Takes Over

    As the tidal wave of omicron crashes over the whole world, the dam built by the religion of science is cracking. And we are here to pick up the pieces. 

    Today we look at the religious, I mean, science leaders and how they have changed their tune in the wake of the latest round.

Fantastic conversation

Great connection between faith and culture. Matt humbly approaches current events and related them to the Word of God. Thought provoking and challenging discourse filled with solid Truth.

NurseJay7 ,

Excellent for the times!

There is no podcast like this. Matt boldly tells news while connecting it in a fresh way to Jesus. Funny, real, applicable. Excellent listen for anyone curious about what is really happening in the world and our nation and how it applies to us.

Rokeedy ,

Truth be told!

This is so good! He is an easy listen, articulates well and speaks truthfully about church and society. Great job!
